Until three days ago, I had no issues importing photos into Windows 10 from my iPhone SE. Now when I plug my phone into my computer, I get a new start screen that I haven't seen before and when I click to import, I get an error message saying "Some photos or videos could not be imported." Has something changed with the desktop app in the last few days?
I've updated my phone software, restarted my phone and my computer and the same thing keeps happening. I can force uploads from the app on my phone, but that's not a solution only a temporary workaround.
Hi @damianamae, that sounds like the default prompt when you connect a 'new' device to your computer and Dropbox detects that. If Autoplay isn't set to automatically import the images, and instead to open that page, then this is why you're seeing it now.
Have you taken any Live Photos on your iPhone recently? Are there are videos on the iPhone. What images or videos aren't copying over, do you know which ones they are and if there's anything in common with them?
Let me know what you find out!
Hi @Jay , thanks for replying.
That's the strange thing, I've had this phone for years. No update had happened between it working one day and then a few days later not uploading. I did get a new battery a week or two ago, but it had been uploading fine after that. Autoplay looks like it's fine, it says "Import photos and videos (Dropbox)" in the settings page.
No live photos, videos or animated gifs have been saved to my phone since before the issue started, and it looks like nothing new gets copied over at all.
Thanks for your help, I really hope this can be figured out.
Thanks for the info!
Could you try 'resetting' the camera upload preferences by doing the following:
